The Pastels of Lauderdale

Spring seems to have sprung on Lauderdale Street, and the pink blooms 
of the Japanese Magnolia do themselves proud
 against the mint green house and turquoise sky. 

This is the Ware-Baker-Jones House that was built around 1859
 and became Grace Hall in 1985. Today, it once again is under restoration.

With a pretty scene like that, would could resist traveling down Lauderdale? The Japanese magnolia blossoms against the lime green house are quite striking. Looks like an early spring for you.
